This was a satisfying project to complete. I really like these beads together, and I like how the gold charlottes tie the clasp into the piece, at least somewhat. Diane Fitzgerald’s instructions show a beaded ball and loop clasp, but I wanted to use a different clasp. I chose to string the tube onto Softflex, and use large rondelles to cover the end of the tube, and crimp on a magnetic clasp. You can see the beading wire through the lattice of the beads if you look closely. I gave this as a gift, and the recipient is quite pleased.
